The challenges facing the health care sector are not just clinical: strategic and organizational factors play a crucial role in the provision of effective and high-quality health care. This symposium investigates how health care processes, outcomes, and innovation are influenced by organization-level strategic decisions and corporate reconfiguration, and by physician-level decisions, such as referral relationships and adoption of new practices and technologies. The five papers showcase research that applies strategic and organizational management theory and methods to study the health care sector. Ultimately, this symposium helps develop a research agenda at the intersection between health care and strategy.
